PDWC 2021 Online High School Parliamentary Debate World Conference and Competition

〜 Creating a New Now 〜

PDWC 2021  Online High School Parliamentary Debate World Conference and Competitionの写真

As part of the WakuPro Foundation’s International Friendship Program, the purpose of the PDWC 2021 Online Debate Conference is to support young people in becoming successful on a global stage. Through providing opportunities for the serious exchange of opinions in a spirit of friendly competition with other high school students from abroad, students will develop their ability to realize this future global society while fostering lifelong friendships.

The debate portion of the event will be facilitated by Debate Mate based in the United Kingdom.

During this event, students and participants should understand that they are representatives of their country and school, and that they are expected to actively connect with participants from other schools and countries, as well as to understand and accept cultural differences so that they can grow their capacity to make a peaceful world a reality.
